Hello! I am Vaibhav and I moved to Tempe for studies and it has been awesome staying here. It has warm climatic conditions round the year although the summer can get pretty hot! The people are very friendly and this city has one of the places with the most exciting and happening night life.
The city of Tempe also known as Hayden’s Ferry during the territorial times of Arizona is a university-city. Named after the Vale of Tempe in Greece the city is home to over hundred thousand people. Tempe is home to the largest campus of Arizona State University and it also has great performance venues like the Gammage Auditorium and the Tempe Centre for the Arts.
The cool thing about this city during New Year’s Eve is that it hosts the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. It’s officially one of the largest New Year’s Eve parties!
Here are my 5 tips for Tempe Arizona:
1) Great Restaurants
Try House of Tricks, Piya Jungle and Chompie’s
2) Good Pubs and Discotheques
Try Monsoon Brewery, Sleepy Dog Brewery and Four Peaks Brewing Company
3) Pleasant Climate
The city has pleasant climate throughout the year.
4) Good food-both veggie and non veggie
As a vegetarian, I found a lot of good places to eat. It’s a green light for many of the fussy eaters.
5) Lots of places for hikes/camping
You could try out some easy hikes like the South Pima Canyon Road or the South Mountain National Park’s Mormon Loop Trail. There’s a hike for every level of expertise. I suggest using this link for www.tempe.gov/parks for more info.
How to approach the city:
This is a Party Town to the core. So enjoy to the fullest but don’t break any rules 🙂 There are lots of other places to visit like museums, theatres, restaurants, etc to enjoy with family too!
